The entry has no equivalent in other lexica, though Hesychius has genitive a)noi/as (quoted from Euripides, Hecuba 641, in Latte's view) glossed with mwri/as.
[1] Or: lack of perception. (This same gloss, a)naisqhsi/a, has been given for a)maqi/a at alpha 1471.) The term anoia can also mean lack of intelligence, as Plato uses it at the end of Timaeus (92C).
